The most adopted textbook for anatomy and physiology courses in
communication sciences and disorders programs!

With many exciting enhancements and robust online resources, the seventh edition of Anatomy & Physiology for Speech, Language, and Hearing provides a solid foundation in anatomical and physiological principles relevant to the fields of speech-language pathology and audiology. The text is supported by an innovative study software program called ANAQUEST that includes interactive lessons, animations, and videos to further help students master the complex material.

This bestselling text is organized around the five “classic” systems of speech, language and hearing: the respiratory, phonatory, articulatory/resonatory, nervous, and auditory systems. Integrating clinical information with everyday experiences to reveal how anatomy and physiology relate to the speech, language, and hearing systems, the text introduces all the essential anatomy and physiology information in a carefully structured way, helping students to steadily build their knowledge and successfully apply it to clinical practice. Hundreds of dynamic, full-color illustrations and online lessons make the complex material approachable even for students with little or no background in anatomy and physiology.
